We’ve featured Wonderboy many times now on Indie Retro News, from the Amiga version of Wonderboy in Monster Land SE, to the previously released Wonderboy 1200; An Arcade game from 1986 as an unofficial Amiga port by Acidbottle. Well here we are with another Wonderboy story to keep you company, as we have recently found out through Twitter, that Acidbottle has teased some new footage of his upcoming game of Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair (AGA); An in development game for the Commodore Amiga using Earok’s excellent Scorpion Engine!
For those of you who haven’t heard of this game before, here is what the wikipedia says about Wonderboy III Monster Lair. “This game is a side-scrolling action game developed by Westone Bit Entertainment that was originally released for the arcades by Sega in 1988. It is the third game in the Wonder Boy series and the last one released for the arcade. A console adaptation was made by Hudson Soft, released in 1989 in Japan for the PC Engine CD-ROM² System and the subsequent North American release on the TurboGrafx-CD dropped the ‘Wonder Boy III’ title. It was also converted and released by Sega for the Mega Drive in Japan in 1990 and Europe in 1991”.
